David Lynch delves into pop music

David Lynch isn’t known for playing it safe.

Over his illustrious career, he’s tackled any genre — or subject — that’s crossed his path, writing, directing, painting, metal-clanking film scores, you name it. But pop music?

Hey — why not?

This week, he releases his first (relatively) radio-friendly single, “Good Day Today,” backed with “I Know,” with the man himself on vocals and production. No joke. And a full album of remixes will follow in January.

The song has already caused controversy.

When it was recently played on KCRW’s “Morning Becomes Eclectic,” it was instantly mistaken for a new Underworld tune (a compliment if ever there was one). But it’s the real Lynch deal, issued on BBC Radio One DJ Rob daBank’s Sunday Best Recordings and featuring artwork from the absolute best: Legendary 4AD conceptualist Vaughan Oliver.
